we are talking about a 2001 f4i....when you brake, the whole front wheel assembly has a bit of play (the forks move jerk around a bit). i'm thinkin its the frame bearings?

any help would be appreciated. thank you.

the forks jerk around? thats weird, any previous accidents or anything? you should take the front fairing/headlight off and make sure your forks clamps are tight, if one of your brake rotors has the slightest bend or rise in it it could also cause head shake when braking. id know, i did 3 trackdays with 1 working front rotor =/

thanks for the input.....

actually when i hit the front brakes...the forks/triple tree/clipons has like 1/4" play.....it kinda shifts forward a bit like it's not tightened hard enough (but i tightened it as hard as it could go down?

Sounds like steering head bearings are loose / worn. Bring it by and I'll let you know which, no charge.
